According to a report by Soccer Laduma, Chippa United head coach Dan "Dance" Malesela has been relieved from his duties by the club's axe wielding chairman, Chippa Mpengisi.

Malesela's sacking comes in the wake of the team's conspicuous struggles in the DStv Premiership.

The Chilli Boys were thoroughly obliterated 5-1 by relegation threatened Maritzburg United yesterday, and it left the Qhebera-based club in precarious position just 1 position above the red zone.

The former Orlando Pirates defender has had an on-and-off relationship with Chippa United, as this was his fourth stint with the club which has now ended in tears again.

He replaced Lehlohonolo Seema who also left the club earlier this season, albeit his appointment came after the club failed in its attempts to rope in controversial Belgian coach Luc Eymael, whose potential appointment was flagged by SAFA citing allegations of racism against him during his time at Tanzanian club Simba FC.

Despite the team lying in a desperate position in the league, Dan Dance leaves the team having reached the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup, it is his solitary victory in 9 league outings which meant he had to bite the dust.

Laduma has intimated at the possibility of the club swooping for Eymael who has since been cleared to work again in South Africa, and was embarrassed by fellow PSL side Tshakuma Tsha Madzhivhandila who were expected to appoint him but pulled out at the eleventh hour.

What do you make of Dan Dance sacking just a few months after taking charge?
